The festival dates of 2015 are announced!
From May, 27th to May 31st we will show films that recently won audience awards at other festivals at the beautiful CITY 46 in Bremen again!
The complete festival programme of the FFF Bremen 2015 will be published here in the beginning of May.
From September 2nd to 6th we once again will celebrate the FFF Berlin at the Kulturfabrik Moabit. It’s our 5th birthday!
And from November 5th to 8th we will travel to Bergen in Norway for the very first time.
Have fun looking around!
In 2015 we move to a third city: Bergen in Norway.
For the FFF Bergen, the programme will be selected together with international partners for the first time: the Tønsberg and the Bergen Filmklubb.
In Norway film clubs are comparable to the German art-house theatres and show film beyond the mainstream.
Of course the FFF Bergen will show audience award winning film s form all over the world only!
We just can’t wait!
Favourites Film Festival Bergen: November 5th to 8th

Luis Salinas, producer of this years winner LA JAULA DE ORO, was kind enough to prepare a small statement for us:
La Jaula de Oro began as a small project, with the intention of bringing the voice of migration to a audience. Slowly the project grew in scale and we realize that we were telling a very important story, that could not be told merely by documenting real immigration. So we took it upon ourselves to make a more significant project with real migrants as actors, thus making the project more honest, because it wasn’t or version it was the migrants version. The film has had a amazing festival run, and winning an audience award at Berlin is very significant, because if a European audience can relate to Central American poverty and migration into the US, this means we were able to transcend the cultural barrier and went straight to the human emotion. It is different winning an award from a jury who is expert in film, then from the audience who are the real critics, this makes it ever so more significant. So thank you all very very much.
